Publisher's Summary

Lisa Hodges needs to make a decision fast. Thanks to her dead husband’s gambling addiction, their savings is almost gone. In her early 50s with a large, waterfront home on Nantucket to support, Lisa hasn’t worked in over 30 years, has no in-demand skills and is virtually unemployable.

Her only options are to sell the house and move off-island, or, she could use her cooking and entertaining skills and turn her home into a bed and breakfast. She desperately needs it to succeed because she has four grown children with problems of their own and wants to stay close to them.

Her oldest daughter, Kate, has a fabulous career in Boston - working as a writer for a popular fashion magazine and engaged to a dangerously handsome, photographer, who none of them have met.

Kate's twin, local artist, Kristen, has been reasonably content with her on-again off-again relationship with an older, separated businessman.

Her son, Chase, runs his own construction business and is carefree, happily dating here and there but nothing serious.

Youngest daughter, Abby, is happily married to her high school sweetheart, and they've been trying to have a baby. But it hasn't happened yet, and Abby wonders if it's a sign that maybe their marriage isn't as perfect as everyone thinks.

Come visit Nantucket and see how Lisa's new bed and breakfast has an impact on almost everyone in her family. It's the first book in a new series that will follow the Hodges family, friends, and visitors to Nantucket's Beach Plum Cove Inn.

Beach read

A light but enjoyable book. The characters are likable and there is enough going on to keep up your interest. I will probably read the next in the series to see what transpires with the main family. It goes quickly enough that I won't feel like it's a tremendous waste of time. if you like Maeve Binchy, Etc. you will enjoy this author.

Too coincidental and narration blends together

This was a breezy listen if you just want a casual background story while you work. Too many happy coincidences and unfortunately the narrator makes every female and male voice sound the same. I lost track of characters. Not bad but just ok.

A quiet type of story...good beach read.

I was looking for “just a story” to relax and listen to with no outrageous drama and no bad language and this is perfect. Just what I wanted. Kind of predictable at times but that’s ok. I didn’t care for the French accent of one of the characters....otherwise the reader’s voice was perfect for this story and she did a good job. I’ll definitely read the next book in the series.

Sugary sweet

This book was very sweet-but in a too sugary sweet way at least for my taste. If you need a complete escape from reality then this may be a good listen for you.

Sweet Story

I enjoyed hanging out with the characters in the story and was sad when it ended. A great escape from the real world.
